Kuwaiti Islamic Scholar Othman Al-Khamees said in a video that was uploaded to his YouTube channel on December 23, 2020 that the Jews that Allah had turned into apes and pigs, according to the Quran, had died and they did not have any descendants. He explained that this means that one cannot say that the Jews are the "sons of apes and pigs." However, one can say that the Jews are "brothers of apes and pigs," because essentially, they became "like them." Al-Khamees added that "it was said" that some Christians were turned into pigs for rejecting Jesus.
Othman Al-Khamees: "The apes today are not the descendants of those Jews [mentioned in the Quran]. Apes existed before and after the appearance of Jews. A group of Jews who violated the Sabbath were punished by Allah, who transformed them into apes, and then they died. That was their end. Therefore, one cannot say that the Jews today are sons of apes and pigs. They are not the sons of apes and pigs. One could say that they are the brothers of apes and pigs, in the sense that [the Jews] became types of apes and pigs, became like them. It was said that 'pigs' refers to Christians – when the rejected Jesus, Allah transformed some of them into pigs. Allah knows best. But indeed there is a group among the People of the Book whom Allah transformed into apes, and there is a group whom [Allah] transformed into pigs."
